This game was made by the same people who made The Graveyard, the game where you play an old lady who can walk around a graveyard and sit on a bench. Groundbreaking stuff, really. Anyways, The Path lets you play as six girls ranging from age 9 to 19. The goal of the game is to get to Grandma's house, just like in the original fairy tale story of Little Red Riding Hood. Of course, you can also stray from the path and explore in the woods, but stay away from WOLVES LOL.
There is one rule in the game. And it needs to be broken.
There is one goal. And when you attain it, you die.
Six sisters live in an apartment in the city. One by one their mother sends them on an errand to their grandmother, who is sick and bedridden. The teenagers are instructed to go to grandmother's house deep in the forest and, by all means, to stay on the path! Wolves are hiding in the woods, just waiting for little girls to stray.
But young women are not exactly known for their obedience, are they? Will they be able to resist the temptations of the forest? Will they stay clear of danger? Can they prevent the ancient tale from being retold?
The Path is a game about growing, about changing, about making choices, about accepting the consequences of these choices. A game about playing, and failing, about embracing life, perhaps by accepting death.
In all seriousness, this game is pretty terrible but it deserves its own thread for seeming so innocent but really being hella disturbing. The actual goal of the game is completely different from what you would expect because this game is actually a LOLI RAPE AND MURDER SIM.
LOLI RAPE AND MURDER SIM
9 year olds. Full force. Every orifice.
Unfortunately for you guys, the game doesn't actually show any penetration or graphic imagery. All you get is a black screen and some cat-like screeching during rape scenes. In fact, you wouldn't even expect your character to be raped until after it happens. In one part, your little girl is walking around and comes across a stage with a piano on it. A little elf goblin comes out and sits beside your girl and they flirt and play the piano together. Cut to black screen with cat screeching. The screen comes back and your little girl is laying in the rain outside of grandma's house and looks obviously raped and battered.
After you drag your girl into grandma's house (I should also mention that the controls are complete and utter shit and your characters are slow as hell) you go through a series of morbid scenes in each room of the house. Eventually you get to grandma's bedroom where you die. Yes, you're raped and then you die. Game rocks.
Also if you don't send your girl to get raped and go directly to grandma's house you get to eat cookies with her, then a screen comes up scolding you for not partaking in the young and nubile rape by saying FAILURE.
I give it 10 out of 10 beaten and battered pre-teen cunts.
